What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is the knowledge of life and health. It is Indian naturopathy which stems from the time of the Vedas. It is the oldest and most comprehensive system of medicine invented for humankind. The term Ayurveda means the ‘science of life’. It teaches a way of life that enables you to be centred and focus on the healing that comes from within. It is a holistic healing science that teaches you to recognise your self – your constitution, and the importance of your role, your actions, behaviour and choices in correct food, herbs, exercise and lifestyle in improving health and preventing disease and deals elaborately with measures for healthful living and vitality for the entire span of a person’s life and its various phases, not only for your own use. It teaches you to respect nature and obey certain natural laws. It has also developed a wide range of therapeutic measures, natural ways and herbs to combat illness and achieve longevity.
The demand for Ayurvedic Practitioners
The popularity of Ayurveda as a modality of health and well-being has steadily grown in recent years. With this growth comes the demand for suitably qualified practitioners to guide people safely and effectively. The Ayurvedic course is a nationally recognised vocational training course that draws from the extensive classical and authentic traditions of Ayurveda. Delivering 600 hours (Diploma) and 1800 hours (Advanced Diploma of Ayurveda), this course provides a breadth and depth of learning that is second to none which has earned it the highest regard nationally and internationally.
Our Ayurveda Courses
The Health Institute Australia offers courses to become an Ayurvedic Lifestyle and Wellness Counsellor and Ayurvedic Wellness Practitioner. With this study you can take more responsibility for your own health and teach others, working as a health care professional helping others incorporate Ayurvedic health principles into their lives.
Whilst firmly anchored in the classical heritage of Ayurveda, our courses are based on a synthesis of the current perspectives on health, along with an integration of contemporary well-being information and practices. These Ayurvedic courses have been developed in consultation with a wide range of teachers and practitioners of Ayurveda, including representatives of the health care industry and training authorities.
Ayurvedic training typically touches on the medical sciences as well as modalities such as herbalism, homeopathy, massage and nutritional science. While conventional medicine treats the symptoms of an illness, ayuredic medicine is more concerned with a patient’s overall health. Ayurveda makes use of a number of natural therapies and approaches, including counselling, dietary advice, herbal remedies and massage, yoga and meditation, amongst others. Practitioners are typically accredited by national associations, which ensure that they have undergone the required training, and comply with the highest standards of Ayurvedic practice.
Maintaining proper health
The current approach to health care is in a fast-paced, high-tech, non-holistic world, in which more attention is often directed towards curing diseases, with more focus on problems and challenges, rather than maintaining proper health.
If you have always wanted to explore a healthy lifestyle for yourself, your friends and your family or considered health as part of a career stream for you, then Ayurveda is for you.
Ayurvedic principles recognise the body’s innate ability to cure itself and regain it’s ‘balance’ through the most natural, non-toxic, non-invasive methods. Ayurvedic cure, intervention and caregiving can be transformative.
